On Friday, June 28th, Mirabito employee Robin Curtis was leaving her 2pm shift at the Chenango Bridge store when she noticed a woman at the gas pump who appeared to be very confused.
When Curtis approached the woman and asked if she needed help, the woman’s response was that she couldn’t find her way home. The woman had wanted to visit her brother, but when he wasn’t home, she turned back around to go home. Upon getting lost, she spotted the Mirabito store, saying she always goes to the one near her home.
Curtis invited the woman inside the store and offered her some cold water. Once inside, the woman couldn’t remember where she lived or if she had gone to visit her brother or son.
The woman took out her license but was still unsure if the address listed was hers. She also couldn’t remember any of her family’s names or phone numbers. Afraid that the woman had a stroke or suffered from dementia, Curtis called the Broome County Sheriff’s Department.
While they waited, Curtis sat with the woman, assuring her that she wouldn’t leave until she had some help. Once the deputy arrived, he tried to contact a member of the woman’s family. Unsuccessful, he drove the woman to the sheriff’s department.
Curtis truly went above and beyond to help! We want to thank her for this act, in addition to all that she does to make our company and our team incredible!
